Canvas for September's Dusty Attic Mood-Board

Hello to all my Blogger Friends...
Today I am showcasing my take on the currant Mood-board challenge from Dusty Attic...I made another canvas, 20x15cm, just love playing with a lot of different textures and colours on a canvas...no rules...just FUN!!!

I loved the colours and textures of especially the bottom right image and based my design on that. Also took the Dream-catcher image using Dusty's Dream-catcher #1.

This is what my canvas looked like after all the elements were added and I started to Gesso everything. Here the top half is already gesso'd. I have used several items for texture...Gauze, Fibre, Lace, Prima Mini and Art stones and a thick layer of white crackle paste. The Dusty Attic chipboard pieces are from the Diamond Panel.

To colour the Dream-catcher I mixed Bling-y-Blonde Magical's from Lindy's Stampgang with Tim Holtz Distress Grit Paste and dabbed it onto the Dream-catcher. I also painted on some Tilt-a-Wheel Teal Magical's. The colours on the feathers are done with water colour pencils. 

To colour the background I used Twinklink H2O's Nutmeg and Burned Umber followed by a dry brushing of Metallique, Steampunk Copper Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint. The blue is Lindy's Flatfabio, Danny Zuko's Denim and Time Travel Teal Magical's, with a dry brush of Opal Magic, Aqua Rose Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint. 
The Dream title was painted with the two colours of magical's and water...

From the Dusty Attic shop I used the following...
